Servings: 4 servings


  • 2 cups Yam, Peeled & Chopped (I use frozen yam)
  • 1 Small Onion, finely choped
  • 2 cloves Garlic, finely minced
  • ¼ tsp Turmeric
  • 2 tbsps Coconut Oil
  • ½ tsp Mustard Seeds
  • 8 ~ 10 Curry leaves
  • To taste Salt & Pepper
  • 1 tsp Red Chili powder


  • If using raw yam, boil it until just tender. I microwaved the frozen yam for couple of minutes.
  • Heat coconut oil in a pan, add the mustard seeds and once the seeds start to splutter, add the onion, garlic and curry leaves. Saute till onion turns golden.
  • Add chili powder, salt and pepper. Next add the yam and mix well to coat with the spices.
  • Cook on medium-low flame, stirring occasionally, until yam is crispy on the outside. Serve hot with rice.
